Where to get photo supplies ( to process B & W films )

Call me crazy, but I'm getting back into processing my own black and white film, by hand, in my kitchen. Ran a couple rolls through the soup the other day and they came out ok, but a little thin. So I decided I need to refresh my aging chemistry and broken thermometer.

Anybody know of a good place, preferably around Luzern, where I can get photo supplies? And don't tell me Ecker or Byland, I already tried and while they have one selection of Ilford developer and fixer, THAT'S IT. No hypo check, no photo flo, no beakers or thermometers. And if you ask, they just respond "nobody needs that, why are you doing it by hand?" Typical.

Throw me a bone.

Bless you. Any idea if those 6er 135 negative sleeves have 6 rows or 7? With my nikon I usually wind up with 38 or 39 exposures on a roll.

Sorry I have no idea, I am only just getting back into analogue photography and am at the very beginning of the learning curve. If you don't speak German then Alessandro speaks good English, give them a call or drop in they are always very welcoming.

I know one in Zurich. Foto Ernst, Badenerstrasse 211 / Lochergut. Go there as long as it is still around.

However, I suggest rewinding after 36 frames.
